Control of Occupational Injury
  • The control of occupational injury and disease risks should preferably be dealt with in a preferred order or hierarchy.
  • The control measures range from the most effective to the least effective.

handle samples
Samples must be handled and prepared to preserve sample and source integrity

Defects or abnormalities in source material and/or sample must be identified and reported

Sample information is to be recorded according to workplace sample recording requirements

The workplace must meets housekeeping standards

sampling procedures
Sampling Procedures
  • Inspection by Attributes
  • ISO15378 - GMP
  • PS9004
  • EN-ISO 9001 –QMS
  • Military Standard 105E
sampling codes
Sampling Codes
  • BS 6001-1 1999 (ISO 2859-1:1999) Sampling

procedures for inspection by attributes. Part 1:

Sampling schemes indexed by acceptance quality

limit (AQL) for lot-by-lot inspection.

  • ISO 2859-2:1985 Sampling procedures for

inspection by attributes. Sampling plans indexed

by limiting quality (LQ) for isolated lot


  • ISO 2859-0:1995 - Part 0: Introduction to the

ISO 2859 attribute sampling system.

Sampling procedures - Inspection by Attributes – p.2/23

iso 2859 part 1
ISO 2859 Part 1
  • Acceptance sampling system for inspection by


  • It is indexed in terms of acceptance quality level


  • Aim - to induce a supplier to maintain a process

average at least as good as the specified

acceptance AQL, whilst at the same time

providing an upper limit for the risk to the

consumer of accepting the occasional poor lot.

  • Applicable to end products, raw materials,

operations, maintenance operations,

administrative procedures.

usage of the part 1 scheme
Usage of the Part 1 scheme.
  • Intended to be used for a continuing series of lots,which will allow the application of switching rules.
  • The rules provide:
    • protection to the consumer should a

deterioration in quality be detected.

    • an incentive to the supplier to reduce

inspection costs should consistently good

quality be achieved.

  • Can also be used for inspection of lots in


  • Inspection by attributes: inspection where an

item is classified as conforming or

nonconforming with respect to a specified

requirement or set of requirements.

  • Nonconformity: Non fulfillment of a specified

requirement. Usually classified according to the

degree of seriousness. More serious

nonconformities will usually be assigned a very

small AQL, whilst less serious nonconformities

will be assigned higher AQL values.

terminology cont
Terminology (cont)
  • Normal inspection: Use of a sampling plan with

acceptance criteria devised to secure the producer

a high probability of acceptance when the process

average of the lot is better than the AQL. Used

when there is no reason to suspect the process

average differs from an acceptable level.

  • Tightened inspection: Use of a sampling plan

with an acceptance criteria that is tighter than that

for the corresponding plan for normal inspection.

Invoked when the inspection results of

consecutive lots indicate that the process average

might be poorer than the AQL.

terminology cont19
Terminology (cont)
  • Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL): Quality level

that is the worst tolerable process average when a

continuing series of lots is submitted for

acceptance sampling. AQL does not mean

’desirable level’. ISO 2859 is designed to

encourage suppliers to have process averages

consistently better than the AQL, otherwise thereis a risk of switching to tighter inspection.

terminology cont20
Terminology (cont)
  • The designation of an AQL does not imply that

the supplier has the right knowingly to supply any

nonconforming items:

  • AQL values shall not exceed 10%


  • When the quality level is expressed as number of

nonconformities per 100 items, AQL values up to

1000 nonconformities per 100 items may be used.

  • Sample selection must be drawn from the lot

by simple random sampling.

  • When double or random sampling is to be

used, each subsequent sample shall be

selected from the remainder of the same lot.

inspection levels
Inspection Levels
  • 4 special inspection levels - S1, S2, S3, S4.
  • 3 general inspection levels - I, II, III.
  • Special inspection levels used when sample size

must be kept small and larger sampling risks can

be tolerated.

  • Level II will be used unless another inspection

level is specified.

  • Level I is used when less discrimination is

required, Level III when greater discrimination is


double sampling plans

oc curves
OC Curves
  • Operating Characteristic Curves
    • OC curve is a graph showing what any particular

sampling plan can be expected to do in terms of

accepting and rejecting batches.

    • An understanding of the implications of an OC

curve helps understand the risks to the

manufacturer, consumer, and in deciding

inspection levels and batch sizes.

    • Each possible plan has its own OC curve.
    • Horizontal scale - shows the percentage defective.

Vertical scale - shows the percentage of batches

that may be expected to be accepted if batches are

produced with that percentage of defects.

using an oc curve
Using an OC curve
  • Interpret the curve according to this example:
    • If the lot quality is 0.093 fraction defective, then the probability of acceptance, Pa, is 0.05.
    • If the lot quality is 0.018 fraction defective, then the probability of acceptance, Pa, is 0.95.
alternative oc for sample plans
Alternative OC for Sample plans
  • You can use oc-curves to compare alternative plans.
  • Choose between the plans by their relative ability to detect rejectable lots.
  • You should expect that the steeper the curve, the larger the sample size.
oc curve example
OC Curve Example
  • Code Letter M
  • AQL 1.5
  • Sample size - 315
  • Accept: 10, Reject: 11
  • What happens if a batch with 3% defectives is

submitted ?

  • Find 3% on the X axis, and follow a vertical line

up until it meets the 1.5% curve.

  • Take a horizontal line across to the Y axis, and

read off the value of 65%.

  • I.e., 65% of batches would be accepted and 35%

  • The OC curve describes the probability of accepting a lot, OC(p), as a function of the proportion non-conforming (p),
concrete examples
Concrete examples
  • EN 455 Part 1 for medical gloves - Pinholes
    • General inspection level 1, AQL 1.5%.
    • Minimum sample size code letter L (200


    • If a batch with 3% pinholes is submitted,

there is a 75% chance of them being accepted.

  • All Wales Universal Container contract
    • Agreed AQL of 0.65%, general Inspection

level I.

    • Sample code L (200 samples).
    • If a batch with 5% leakers is submitted, there

is a 99% chance of them being rejected.

setting an inspection level
Setting an Inspection Level
  • Select the required AQL (as an average).
  • Decide what quality should have a high chance of


  • Choose the appropriate sampling plan by

inspecting the OC curves.

setting an inspection level41
Setting an Inspection Level
  • Example
  • An AQL of 1.5% defective items has been chosen.
  • It is desired to have at least an 80% chance of rejecting a 6% defective batch under normal inspection.
  • Code letters A->J fail to meet the requirement.
  • Code letter K almost meets it, codes L-P more than meet it.
  • Decide the batch size. If batch size is 1000, check sample size code letters table - we can use general inspection level III.
  • The sampling plan would therefore be AQL=1.5%, General Inspection Level=III.
switching rules
Switching Rules
  • Normal to tightened: Shall be implemented as soon as two out of five (or fewer than five) consecutive lots have been non-acceptable on original inspection.
  • Tightened to normal: Shall be reinstated when five consecutive lots have been considered acceptable on original inspection.
  • Normal to reduced: implemented when the switching score is at least 30, production is at a steady state, and reduced inspection is considered desirable by the responsible authority.
  • Discontinuation of inspection: is implemented when the

number of lots not accepted in a sequence of consecutive lots on original tightened inspection reaches 5.

  • Reduced to normal: if a lot is not accepted or irregular/delayed production.
switching scores
Switching Scores
  • Single Sampling Plans
  • Used when deciding whether to switch to reduced inspection.
  • Set switching score to 0 at start of normal inspection.
  • Score updated following the inspection of each lot.
  • When the acceptance number is >= 2, add 3 to the switching

score if the lot would have been accepted if the AQL had been

one step tighter; otherwise reset score to 0.

  • When the acceptance number is 0 or 1, add 2 to the switching

score if the lot is accepted; otherwise reset score to 0.

  • As in the previous slide, when the switching score is at least 30

and production is at a steady state, switch to reduced inspection if

considered desirable by the responsible authority.

important points
Important points
  • Setting an AQL does not guarantee to the

customer that batches of a worse quality will not

be accepted.

  • If the average quality of batches being submitted

are a little worse than the AQL, a number of

batches will probably be accepted before a switch

to tightened inspection is called for.

  • In general, the customer gets a quality which is,

on average, better than the AQL, since the tables

are arranged to provide an economic incentive -

the manufacturer cannot afford to have more than

a small proportion of batches rejected, and so will

improve the quality if this proportion is exceeded.
